Dear everyone,

i'm sorry for my english but i just want to say few things.

i am saddened by whats happening in the site right now. Me, Bindu and avich created this site to gather people who enjoy watching anime and make friends. we hired moderators to help us out because we cant do this ourselves. i trusted people even tho i dont trust people so easily.

we made OS for everyone to have fun. we worked hard to provide everyone free anime videos. K and chiva became inactive after few yrs because of their work and outside life. i am the only one left. i cant make decisions bymyself so evryone in the staff started to help me in making improvements and new ideas. maybe it was a mistake because everyone started to fight because of diferences in ideas and opinions. back then only me, chiva and K makes decisions and it was easy for everyone.

i trusted all the mods. I believe they all did good job. yes, there were arguments happening in within the staff but we like to keep it to ourself, only within the staff. i dont want anyone outside the staff to be bothered by it because you came here in OS to have fun streaming and make friends. youre not here to listen to dramas and witness fights. so i am very disappointed that some people took it very seriously and left the staff and insulting the rest of the staff. you had the choice to leave properly, but instead you stained our reputation that K, me and chiva worked hard to build. when you did that you also insulted me. if you left us because of the tension between the PH mods and some mods from the west, well, look what you did now. you caused the whole community to be divided. you dragged everyone to this issue that is suppose to be only within inside the staff. thats not what i wanted to happend when i made OS. our members are not suppose to be bothering this things not because its embarrasing but because i want them only to have fun in staying here. i trusted all of you.

we all make mistakes, we all have different opinions. the Staff may have arguments but we are doing this because we want to improve things in OS. we may have different ideas but its all because for the betterment of your stay and experience here.

i want mods to have fun too. they are doing all of this for free. nothing from your donations go to the pocket of anyone in the staff. i want them to not to take everything seriously. i did not want them to have any frustrations in being a moderator. K advised all the mods to just resign if they feel like moderating is causing them to have frustrations and not have fun in doing it.

with all this mismanagement issues happening, we are bringing it back to like what it was before. only me, Kobo, Cloverleaf and pikel will be the one making major decisions for tge site but will also ask opinions from the other staff. we are all doing this improvements and changes to make OS more fun to everyone.

to those who resigned and cause a great damage in the community that youre saying that you love, thank you for helping us out and your contributions to OS when youre still a staff member. i hope youre happy now. i am also sorry if you have issues with me.

to the current staff members, i advise you to pls resign now if you dont want to cooperate. if you have frustrations in doing your job, pls resign now cause i dont want that to happen to you. i want you to enjoy doing this. lets prove to them that we are better of without them.

to members, what you read in threads or PMs is not the whole story so pls dont judge them. i dont want you to be involved in this. i just want you to have fun, i am really really sorry for all of this trouble.


to everyone, lets all move on. i dont want to see any more discussion or fights about this matter. if needed, i would gladly ban ANYONE who will try to worsen the situation, staff member or not.

Thats all. Sorry for my bad english.

Thank you. :) Everything you've done for us so far, means a lot. I really appreciate your hard work and for creating this site. ^^

It seems a bit selfish to say that some OS staff are ruining the entire site by no longer volunteering for free.

Thank you for putting the time and effort to create this site. It's very nicely done. My first preference of where I watch anime is here.
I hope these problems doe arise in the future along with any other problem.
I hope issues can be resolved nicely among you guys. :)
Thank you for all the hard work.

It seems a bit selfish to say that some OS staff are ruining the entire site by no longer volunteering for free.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "selfish." No one is saying that some staff are ruining the site by no longer "volunteering for free" either. It's not that they resigned but rather the manner in which it occurred, and the purely unnecessary drama which ensued as a result thereof, which were the issues. While it was rather unpleasant, in no way did it ruin "the entire site" by any means. Perhaps a second reading and a clearer understanding would help you understand the intent of the post.

I think jbluey meant (through a rather well written post) was to say that moderators bringing drama in front of the entire community is an issue, not staff members who quit working for free. I'm a regular member and been so for a very long time, though I don't get involved with the community much. But from life experience both as a leader and a follower in communities beyond the internet, any internal drama should be kept internal and not put in front of others that the drama has really nothing to do with. I guarantee most communities that put dramas in the forefront and publicly don't survive if they continue to do so. Jbluey is doing the best for this community in trying to make things right, and I wish the best for Jbluey's efforts.

Thank goodness this came from an actual admin with real authority to the site, not just people with an exaggerated god complex who think they're too important to the community.

The intense attention seeking has been bothering me, an innocent member, who has absolutely nothing to do with the issues among the staff is being dragged in. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who feels like this. But the overall tension and thirst for white knights coming from the resigned mods is affecting a lot of people. Some donators even feel like not donating anymore because of the misconception that the staff is mismanaging the site.

On a member's perspective, here's what I think without knowing the inner turmoil within you staff:

EVERYTHING LOOKS FINE.

jesus christ, nothing is mismanaged to the eyes of the members until they literally screamed to everyone that everything is going the wrong way. The anime is updated in a nice pace, the uploaders still upload, we members watch the anime, we interact among each other. Isn't this what the site is for? To watch anime and enjoy it with people who also love watching?

Just what part of this is mismanaged? The past few days, all I saw was an intense thirst for attention. They even went to the point of pm'ing online people and linking them to the retirement thread. I am in utter disgust. They say they love the community? Aren't they contradicting themselves by instilling an idea among innocent members that they're being fooled?

They retired, can we just move on? Or do you guys want to feed on more attention? If you dislike the way the higher ups manage things, then go lmao no need to be butthurt.

Jim, thank you for saying this.

I needed to say this for a while but the shoutbox and chatbox weren't the place for it and I needed time to sort out my thoughts because I didn't want to say anything to make the situation worse. This is my perspective and I only intend to contribute to the situation and give it a broader picture.

My stay here at this site hasn't lasted long, and I'm positive it will continue to last. I have only been here for a year and a half and the people here made this site into a place that had gotten me through my worst times and my best. I may have held frustrations and anger against others but those would always pass sometime. I never meant to hold anything against others and I apologize to some if I have and never faced it.

It's saddening to think that there are some people who chose to become inactive because they could not talk to friends throughout the site without being taunted, provoked, or completely ignored by the vast majority who felt that it was right to only pay attention to one other person.

There was a time I even felt like becoming a mod would be a more unpleasant experience than an enjoyable one, although now I have a newfound will to become one because I feel the need to do something more to contribute to this site. There were instances where some would act on their frustrations when talking, flamebaiting as a result. And I have seen this happen more in the last two or three days than the previous year. I am in no position to say myself that this petty feud needs to end, because I know very well that I wouldn't be listened to. But I hope you realize that what you communicated in this announcement is the very thing that many of us had wanted to express and I am sure many others are grateful for you taking the initiative to say this and be heard when some of us don't have the power to do so ourselves.

Thank you Jim.

all of the staff issues and other problems doesn't bother me at all. as long as OS will stay up and i can watch anime without any problem that would be fine for me.

jbluey I am so glad you care so much about this site. I am truly touched by your dedication to it. I feel quite consoled knowing that you are going to be making the decisions. You and Bindu were very kind to me when I first arrived on this site. I have missed Bindu a lot but I am very glad that you are still here. This site has really been a refuge for me at times I needed it the most and the community has become sacred to me so much so that I have actually kept the site a secret from a select group of people I know who would disrupt the peace that normally resides here. I could praise you and the site for awhile but I will stop here. Again, thank you for all you do and for those that are willing to promote an enjoyable and peaceful atmosphere by volunteering to help with the site. If I had the time and means I would have tried to join the ranks long ago, so I respect those of you who have.

I have to agree with many here. The mods are doing their very best, and what they've done so far is truly amazing. They don't get paid, yet they spend a lot of time, contributing and working hard for the sake of this site and it's members.

I hope that this site will always be here because it's something I would want to introduce to my anime-loving friends and my future children. It's a wonderful community with friendly, helpful mods and kind members.

And I honestly never encountered a problem with any of the mods. I respect and appreciate them. Without them, I doubt this site will still be running like this, or not running at all.

Thanks for everything you've done, Jim-sama. :D Don't worry, we will help you make the ShoutBox and ChatBox alive and make it fun for the other co-members :D Full respect for Jim-sama and to all the Moderators. All Hail OS!! :D

Id say, why taking dirt outside the staff room?
Those who resigned, resigned and had theyr reasons for it.
Those that are still there, have a bit more work to do while it gets under control...
There is no need or reason to apologise to members, those things should be taken care of behind closed doors.
Thats all folks...
Still thanks Jim for your work on OS.

Thank you for clearing this thing out, this'll mean a lot to us who're confused with these issues. i have lost understanding here in os few days ago when this all started. when i tried to get on SB, i coincidentally see them discussing about these and i tend to keep out instead of looking at it or even tag along with the convo. i haven't been on for days. i lost the will to explore or even stream or chat. one of the reasons include this. so i really thank you for clearing it out.

While people from the PH and west may be intrinsically different, there is no difference in the community. Thinking that way is only going to help keep the divide apparent now. There will always be differing mentalities here. Everyone still cares about the site in their own way.

Jim all I want to say is thank you for everything. I have faith with you, clover, pikel, kob owo and the rest of the OS staff. I do agree that there are things that should involve the staff that the users of this site don't need to know; they have a right to enjoy and have fun, they shouldn't be concerned with any drama with the OS staff.

As a Marketing Specialist that grows websites through SEO, branding, & press relations, I've watched many businesses & websites of many genres fall from grace for similar reasons. Some did not recover. Some did. Some staff of similar sites were even so angry that they intentionally summoned groups that lead to DMCA nightmares.

Personally, I don't agree with the initial publication of this dispute to the community - nor do I agree with the continued publication of this dispute by you & other staff members. I think this is a mistake on all sides here. I also won't agree to go as far as to say it is ruining a website. That requires speaking on behalf of a lot of people when it is the community that ultimately decides that for themselves.

I think many people still love you, your staff, & the site in general, Jim. That isn't going to change. You're a really nice person - & so are your staff members, as well as those who decided to leave. The strong feelings of those that worked so hard who left are also a confirmation of the overwhelming love that I believe they still have for the OS community even now. So, I prefer not to judge any of them like this, especially after everything they have done.

I hope you & everyone else will have the heart to consider this as well. But, I do think anything that needs to be said on a matter like this should remain privately discussed amongst staff as of now - not here in public.

Good luck. =)

Thank you very much for doing what you're doing jbluey.


I started out by finding this site to watch anime, and I made a couple friends along the way, I really appreciate you creating this site, as I would have never found and watched the animes I have, your hard work gave me awesome quality animes and made me the person I am today by doing so, once again, thank you and the mods for their hard work.

Thanks for clearing the misunderstanding. At least now I know that the site is still alive and kicking. This is the only site I've watched anime.

Though I always complain in the shoutbox whenever the anime is being uploaded late. Tee hee~

I felt no division, discomfort, or disassociation from these problems. However, I will say that I was disappointed to see that the staff were not getting along due to differences in opinions. Opinions are simply opinions, and everyone is entitled to their own. Furthermore, it doesn't make sense to fight over different opinions. *sigh* Just wanted to place my input. Lastly, I give my thanks to all mods, former mods, admin, etc. for their hard work.

mh~ yeh iv never been involved with the community of OS i was recomended by a friend from my old school.. and all i can say is that i hope the site continues on a good path and does not go astray because then i wouldnt have a website where i could have all my anime favorited.. i probably wouldnt remember what i watched.. :P ... anyways.. i think its important to take a deep breath sometimes and just let it all go and dont come on to OS if your in a bad mood.. cus that can only cause troubles for yourself ik other people have mentioned how sites fall due to this stuff and its true.. but to be honest jbluey i think you can do a great job and you shouldnt doubt yourself when it comes to this sight.. unless is personal reasons ofc. i wish you guys all the best with this problem i have no knowledge of... first and last time i post anything ... lel

jbluey, i've been using your site for a long time now. i don't interact in the community a lot but i do watch a lot of anime here. i've seen OS grow and i love the job that you and the staff have been doing. keep up the good work!

The Jbluey-Sama has spoken!
Let there be madness no more!

The leaders should not bring their differences to the public.
How can an Army, heck, a platoon thrive, if it's squad leaders are fighting openly in front of the soldiers?
Not well, no matter who is right, trust me, the end result ain't pretty. We gained a punishment enough from our boss, that if nothing else taught us.

I myself appreciate, if I am told of such shadows that lie in "The Corner" of OS.
To let myself choose, who is evil and who is not (if one can make such a solution).
Perhaps, as Squad Leader, I am experienced enough to handle this kind of "stuff", but bring it so openly to the public to see, is uncalled for, to both sides, in my opinion.

So regardless of right and wrong, the differences should stay within the Leaders,
unless of course, there are plans for revolution, I personally would like to revolt (I don't mean in OS, but generally). Viva La Revolution!

Let's hope the Quality of OS will not degenerate, but in fact, grow strong from it's wounds.

All Hail Os!

02-07-2014, 12:06 AM
differences is there because you guys just want OS to be the best for us. Thankyou for all your efforts, OS is still the best for me. and i'm here for years now. i'm still loving OS as i did when i first registered and it is all because of you. Thankyou. and may the odds be ever in your favor. :goodjob:

Oh man good moments ruined

Anyway I must say that we (members) and non-members should respect each other especially to the staff members of OS... They work hard to put these sights and uploaders doing their job (FOR FREE) and so we should learn how to lower our pride and forgive-- So thanks to all OS staff and members for hard work and for the uploaders who is doing a great job for us to watch their uploaded videos and getting our life to live to the fullest-- I know I don't do much stuff for the community just yet but I'm just around the corner (or in the bathroom watching) lol

Thanks Jim~ :)


It seems a bit selfish to say that some OS staff are ruining the entire site by no longer volunteering for free.

I should probably not be the one to say this but taking only 1 opinion/idea from 1 side of the problem through PM isn't the best idea to know what happened x)

not really a staff but it if staff aren't working or volunteering for free then .. they have nothing to take from OS :) OS isn't offering them neither money neither anything here in return for their help.

Thank you for trying to clarify this with your heartfelt message, however I think the more mature members of the community like myself would not judge just by one story as it seems that in life, you can never get the full story. Thank you for the continued service and I hope you continue to do the same even though you might be worn out currently.

Jbluey, The Staff and Mods who have chosen to stay, from the bottom of my heart i thank you for this recent post, it will show people that the staff and mods that choose to stay with OS are going to keep on trying to make this a good environment to everyone that just wants to watch some free anime and enjoy their time here. I for one love this site as something to fall asleep to during the weekdays and to watch when i'm in the mood for anime or want to see if <insert series here> is still going and if there are any new episodes coming out, or just new anime that look good. I hope that the community can get even stronger because of these incidents that have been happening recently and to see if any new moderators or new additons to staff will come soon with good judgement ;). All in all i love this site and it's community it's quite fun being here :3.

As someone who never looks at the forums or sb this is kinda a shock to me that anything happened.
But I still have to thank every mod for the work they did even if they did cause drama because this site was and still is great.
And I have to thank extra all of the mods, uploaders and supporters for keeping this site calm and quiet in terms of drama for time I've been here. I enjoy this site more than any other and it will always be the best.

No problems here. I appreciate everyone's hard work in keeping this site running and creating what we have today. I hope things calm down for you, jbluey, and anyone else who is being affected by the stress caused by maintaining the site. I also hope you can keep moving forward too, in the way which has made this my preferred (nearly exclusive now) streaming location.

Thanks so much and Good luck~

Now that the boss has spoken, then the old post is really true...

It's alright to feel that way boss, conflicts cannot be avoided anyway. And you tried your best not to get us involved. You're like a father protecting his family from a certain danger that you only know just to let them have a normal life. That was a pretty respectable thing to do. Thanks to your announcement everything is clear to me know. Hopefully OS will only have minor problems in the future like no subs in anime :)

Hello to everybody. I want to thank you for creating otaku streamers site. I hope everybody can get along the staff, mods, members set our aside our differences. I do understand different cultures, race, from other countries. Oh well i hope otaku streamers are united as one family if there are any problems or issues can just talk it out how to solve the problems and become friends again. :D i love you all.

Arguments within an organization is normal. But it will be okay.

Hope that you'll be alright as well.
Think of it as a hurdle to overcome. :)

And I really do like Otaku Streamers your hardwork has indeed paid off since a lot of users are very much satisfied with your site.
Thank you and hope things go well. :)

great job jim, for expressing what's the site for. I really appreciate your concern for this site even if you have your work or personal life. In this time we need to be strong and be aware that if one problem is in the staff then let it be in the staff only. we members do not have the right to judge each other's side yet we have to support the community on their decisions. Because it's for the community.

OS will continue to be an awesome streaming site no matter what happens /no1 It makes us happy to know that the OS management cares about us so much. We are REALLY proud to be a part of this community and family :) Most importantly, we should all put our differences aside and support OS /ok
ALL HAIL OS!~

Wow! My respect for you is increasing, Jim-sama! Orz I was hoping to see you speak out on behalf of the remaining staffs, in behalf of all members and end these issues once and for all. I thank you for doing that.

I am in no position to say anything since I don't know the whole story and only heard few tidbits from here and there. Most, if not all, members truly love the site you created. I was disappointed that a rift among the staffs that was supposed to be discussed on a private setting was publicized -- thus, giving us all active members the front seats in the midst of this chaos. I admire how you express yourself without hurting or bashing someone and reminding us that we're here to have fun -- not to be stressed. This open letter of yours made me feel that this site, the site that gives us satisfaction and enjoyment after a tiring day, is being well taken care of by a man who built this himself and is not mismanaged.

Again, I thank you. Thank you for creating this site, for maintaining the peace and tranquility I have felt ever since I decided to create an account here, for professionally expressing yourself, and for expressing what most of us feel when all these issues popped up. Thanks! All hail OS~

This is a great site.. i hope it remains that way. If its not broke ; don't fix it. I think the OP has the right idea going back to original formula can never hurt!.

I'm not sure of exactly whats going on., cause i don't rummage these forums that much. But i really like this site so i would hate to see it take a turn for the worst.

jbluey, i think you got your point across well. Your English was good! :bingo:.

best of luck with the revisions.

Atlast this drama is finally over. XD im really relieved. The point of this Site is really to have fun with each other and sharing, watching, discussing Anime and stuffs. Not to be a Company or a Legal Institution of sorts or be a "Detrimental" member of the society. This site's point is to be as fun as possible for everybody and "Jim", "Chiva" and "Bindu" all made it Possible for all of us. they hired people for free so they can get the small perspective of the community to further Improve this Awesome site.

In My Opinion all I can say is. "Y SO SERIOUS?" they are spoiling the Fun for everybody by being like a "Higher" Person on the Community. but its not that how its supposed to work. we are all Equal here and we all want to be Good Friends.

So Lets All Have Fun ^^

I must confess i haven't been an active user for quite a while now! unfortunately i can't spend as much time here as i once did and wish to do. This Thread came like a wrecking b..... sorry, it came out of the blue for me.

I always think of OS as an awesome community, i still remember when i would take part of a conversation in the SB or CB without ever thinking of something like this, and i hope such a misfortune won't happen again, may we all learn with all our mistakes as a community!

hopefully it will all be forgotten and forgiven! The best of luck for OS!

so there, I was away from anime for a few weeks, and now something happened and I have no freaking idea what. At first I thought that the site is being shut down and got scared like hell... Despite the fact that I've got no idea what went wrong, I sure hope everything will work out just fine.

Keep it cool, and thanks for yout efforts ^^

been here for almost 5 years already. Been here since K, Chiva and Jim was so active in almost everywhere you see. May it be in threads or CB. Back then the only problems we ever here from them are the lack of financial capability. It made me so sad to hear this issue. I never ever even once heard them especially those big three ever told us that they have issues in their differences of ideas. Anyways I agree with Jim that should just keep the decision making on minimal people.

Jbluey, do not fret about your community. We are all human and we understand problems arise. I for one do not judge those who may have caused you problems. Anime is here and that is what we the viewers should focus on. Keep up the good work, I for one enjoy ever title i have come across on the site, and look forward to those yet to come. ^_^

arara.. ive been out for a week and i missed a lot of things...

i think you actually we guys cannot prevent misunderstanding its because we all think differently and its part of our daily life, but you could always talk.. keep an open mind.. not everyone can understand you right? come on guys you volunteered to be a staff no one begged you to be one right? you must know the consequences of your actions and you must think/consider the people that will be affected. open communication is always a good option but that doesnt mean that you should tell it to everybody, you must also have patience a lot of it. i know i dont have the right to say such things cause well im just a lazy member who didnt do anything for the site.. but hell yeah thats why we have staffs right? remember guys you are the core of this family, what will happen if that core will break apart? think about it.. i dont know if im making any sense.. but guys i do thank you for all the hard work that you have done... keep up the good work guys... gambatte ne! i know you can do it.. FIGHT-O! thank you... :)

-just hang in there. and jbluey and staff you can ask your lazy members to help if your hands are full.. hehe keep safe guys.. *hugs*

Like you say, jbluey, there is no way that we can know the whole story and judge properly. However, I see nothing bad in what you say. In fact it's the first time I can agree to the entire reasoning of someone who claims that doesn't want the conflicts to go on. I too find it quite silly to fight over such things whose sole purpose originally was to offer joy. Anyway it's really good that you acted fast because you can rescue what needs rescuing for sure. Best luck, thanks to everyone who works to make the site so great so that we can enjoy our anime. :)

I think jbluey meant (through a rather well written post) was to say that moderators bringing drama in front of the entire community is an issue, not staff members who quit working for free. I'm a regular member and been so for a very long time, though I don't get involved with the community much. But from life experience both as a leader and a follower in communities beyond the internet, any internal drama should be kept internal and not put in front of others that the drama has really nothing to do with. I guarantee most communities that put dramas in the forefront and publicly don't survive if they continue to do so. Jbluey is doing the best for this community in trying to make things right, and I wish the best for Jbluey's efforts.


I'm really greatfull on how this community works and managed. Ive been streaming here In OS for about a years and i haven't complained anything cause theres nothing really to compalin with ...


Just try to share ideas and decisions fairly ,respect others decision and dont try to make an issue on it cause it can lead you all into an argument and start a fight.No one need to show off on making a decision just to be popular !

But i think you all did a great job cause OS is really awesome just chear up guys

If it wasn't for this site I know that I wouldn't be able to watch anime because I can't afford to (I don't have the money for dvd's etc)I know that there is a lot of hard work being put into this site and for that I'm grateful.I also know that running a site like this has to be extremely stressful to.I can understand that not everyone gets on but that should not come between the love of anime we have.All I ask is that everyone tries their best to do the right thing.

02-07-2014, 08:08 PM
Not A Spy: I'm not quite sure what you read, but I did not read that accusation anywhere in J's post. Now, I've always been frank about the things I don't like about anything, while still maintaining the perspective that to each their own. He wrote that people here volunteer their time for free and should be commended for it. That if it DOES cause anyone harm or stress, they should resign. There's nothing selfish or unfair in that.

The only reasons I've ever wanted to go to any other site and watch stuff elsewhere, has been because some members of the community (not moderators, although a small handful did get out of control) had entitlement issues. That's not to blame on someone whose main responsibility was coding and such. Out of anyone I could ever rant about here Jbluey is not one of them. Whenever he DID see one of my messages on msn or elsewhere, the guy fixed the issue.

I know some of these points weren't in your post (just the for free stuff) but I didn't want to do a double post when there's no reason to.

As for everyone else, I think it's probably best if we drop the entitled "me me me" attitudes and stop excluding people who want to be part of the community. Some people will not like ecchi, some won't speak tagalog, some won't always be part of your inner circle. None of these are valid reasons to treat other people like crap.

Mods and ex-mods with the infighting, no individual should ever feel like they are at their wits end and feel the need to post a rather desperate plea for cooperation from people they trusted. I hope that you all take this as a growing lesson and learn how to handle people you don't always agree with while maintaining some decency and respect for one another. Also, it's a bit shameful that anyone of "lesser" status than you all has to even say this. You're supposed to set an example for us, not vice versa.

Good luck and may the Pocky always be with you.

I have not been online in a few days, but it seems some events happened here while I was away. I don't know anything about what was happening, but, I am really happy to be a part of the OS community. The site is really nice, and I really enjoy coming here to watch anime, (I rarely go anywhere else). I am really grateful to mods, past or present for everything they do, and I hope that what ever the issues are, are able to be resolved and that OS can move forward. Would it be appropriate to say 'The show must go on?' -grins- I look forward to continuing watching with everyone.

I understand there are a lot of comments and issues on this matter and many hearts were wrenched in the process simply because this was a highly emotional issue. I've not exactly been here long enough to have much power in my words compared to the overwhelming amount of others who are higher than I...either way, even though those who did in fact stir things into motion were important to me, such is the way of many who live in control and dwell on the power received through your entrustment. There are soooo many people part of the OS community and bravo in your accomplishments. You have made an impact on my life for sure and will always be remembered....however, I would like one last say in the matter...even though I know it may be ignored or taken into offense. Growing up as a farmboy and living the life I have, I've learned to say what is right, no matter the sting that may come with it.

I should have figured issues were flaring between those of power within the site...or at least they saw it as power. I know what you wanted was responsibility and honor to be their characteristics rather than "power," but such is the way life is...I applaud your decision to revert back to your failsafe of the original triumvirate...er...quadumvirate...It may prove to be much more affective than your attempts to move forward. I can only say, I feel sorry for the chaos you had to undergo to get to this point. Your goal was to create a sanctuary for those who share the same love and passion for anime to gather, establish bonds, and overall...inspire happiness. Putting a smile on the faces of others is a very selfless act...and for that, I respect you much more than I used to. I know that doesn't mean much coming from a petty farmer, but it is in my truest regard...Honestly, if I had more time and had more experience, I would have been honored to join those who recieved the honor to act under your same objective, who shared your passion...Unfortunately, I can't...maybe someday ;)

...geez...I'm rambling again...Anyways, what I guess I'm saying is: OS is my home, my sanctuary, my family...You are all my family and are important to me through thick and thin. Sometimes families go through tough times, but it is the bonds we have established that still keep us together. Forgive me if I had any play in these unfortunate events. I will always remain here, always come back home...and maybe someday, join you in your dreams for this family if you allow it. Until then, I will watch...(not anime surprisingly XD I haven't seen very much) I will provide support whenever you need it if you but ask. I would do anything for this family that saved my life countless times.

Continue on with your heart true to your foundations, and I will always follow :) A pleasure to meet you sir...and hopefully one day I may obtain the honor to join you. Don't work too hard sir...

In ADVANCE! Sorry for my grammar if its kinda wrong :)

This might my first message i ever created, because i'm so shy in having friend with others. Scared of what will other will think/feel of me when i chat with them and i'm really lonely ever seen before i haven't found this Streaming Site. Honestly, i don't know what will people think/feel in this message. In advance, sorry.

Before, my daily routine is waking up 5:00AM to 5:30AM early, pray to god that he give me a new day, making some basic exercise, then going to kitchen, gargle some mouth wash then, make a breakfast for my office-mate because i was leaving in a company-owned bedroom where i'm working presently. After cooking, i'm preparing a meal so that when i call my boss, the breakfast is well-served. Then, we eat. I'll call the dishwasher so that he will manage the dishes, then i'm going to C.R, taking a bath and i do thoroughly clean my self...i even used different great soap like; kojic papaya soap, anti-ageing soap, glutathione soap, using shampoo and conditioner and having tooth-brush, going back to my room, putting some deodorant, using lotion through-out my body, then i' preparing for my attire for my work later-on. In the 11:00AM to 12:00PM morning to noon, i also prepare for the Lunch meal. Then, after meal...have some rest, later on...work will continue, in 3:30PM 4:00PM i preapre for meriendas, after that managing other works till 5:00PM comes. After that, i'll preapare for dinner for my officemate. I used to cooked them, because i like cooking and i voluntarily lend them my help in return of making me stay in their office-bedroom.

I'm working as Government Employee, with a basic salary yet it is not enough to make me survive. After a very stressful day i worked, i go to my room, manage an alarm to make a short nap as i rest my body, when the alarm rang i wake up then went to C.R, thoroughly clean myself that i usually do then go to bed to sleep. I do it before, everyday.

But when, one time morning after i take a bath then manage myself going to office that some of my office-mates are discussing a story from other office-mate that she is always watching in steam that me her stress and fatigue relieved, i was very curious to on it even i don't know the site of that streaming.

Then, there i discover this Astonishingly and Amazing Streaming Site, that presently make my stressful day and very fatigue feeling go away. It really helps me a lot. I also, refer this site to my friend nor office-mate.

There are times, while i'm watching some anime...i used to read some chat from the chat-box...or after i watch anime, i'm going to forum reading some article on what happening here at OS.

What's happening here in OS, is just a trials in making this streaming site building a strong foundation especially to what more it will encounter. I'm hoping that we think/understand first on what's really happening before we act or join to situation is happening.

Even it is Small-Deal or Big-Deal because it's not just our self-image nor situation that is making ugly but its the Site too. Think of what will other think especially for the first-timer in this site while their reading a misunderstanding or miscommunication of this Site having. So, please for everyone sake and especially to this good site in helping some people for their problem, let's all understand to what is really happening and cooperate to what does the Administrator's, Moderator's & Staff are procuring. Hope make our minds open in this matter/situation.

Thank you for Leading this OS in good, especially making everyone happy and having fun. I'm hoping that everyone will now be fine. Forget what happen, and move on so that our OS will lead a better future. And always promote camaraderie so that everyone will assure that we will be as strong than ever.

That's all, maybe this might be my first and last message...because i'm really shy and don't know if i exaggeratedly expressed my feelings to what's happening to this good Site we are having. :(

I don't know the issue but I hope this will just be forgotten one day. Let's just move on and go back to the days that we used to have. Specially for the mods, let's just enjoy watching and being friends with everyone and be happy because your hard work paid off. Thanks for everything mods, specially Jim-san. OS is made for otakus and new friendships right? Nationlity doesn't have anything to do with this. Please fix this and we members will help you if there is something we can do for our community.

No matter what, I still think that OS is the best site for streaming anime. That alone is enough. The community and the friends I've met here is a great bonus. It's well maintained and I'm pretty sure the members greatly appreciate this site. So, yay! Thank you jbluey and all the founders for making this site. We should also be thankful for the mods for maintaining this wonderful site.

I don't know the whole story, but I would like to say this. Internal conflicts, especially if they're personal, should only be handled and discussed by the parties involved. I don't think there is a need to create a public uproar and mess with the peace that the community has. I don't think our races or our cultures greatly affect the decisions we make. That's nothing. We have a different culture here in this site. We all love anime, we have an otaku culture. Thinking about it in that light, all of us don't have much of a difference, right? Disagreements should just be handled professionally. No one should make a drama out of disagreements especially during a decision making process.

But the bottomline is that I love OS and I think it's great. :)

i am just happy to have a site that i can truly call home sure i sometimes go off site to watch some shows but the only reason for that is because they get the upload of the new episode up much faster i wish i could go back to my uploading days but i am sad to say that with the way my computer is that is not possible i pretty sure i know what wrong with it but i do not have the money to fix it so i just pretty much a watcher now i been here since like 08 i us to download and watch but wen i went on the hunt for a good site to watch anime from i came across this one and i have not left since then so i sure there where some fights here and there but what i hope comes from it all is something that can make us all feel more at home like i do so all i have to say is


LONG LIVE THE LIFE OF THE OTAKU WAY AND ALL BOW DOWN AND LOVE OS

Months have passed by and because of that, I wasn't able to hear messages about this. Truthfully, it saddens me enough to know after reading this post, there are actual conflicts happening around here just because of a few misunderstood statements or whatever it is. I just want to say shortly that even though in some time, I only get to take a peek here and I don't even talk to anyone whenever I log in but I feel very happy whenever I get the chance to make sure OS is doing well with everybody enjoying each others company. However, deep within me, I can't help to feel disappointed to whoever started the ruckus and caused everyone to feel bad. I don't know what really happened but you have my support. I hope that the arguments will be cleared of completely.

I really am VERY 3x thankful to all who handled OS carefully and wholeheartedly. I will forever be grateful (눈ε눈 )

~~~Hello minna!! (*^_^*)

First of all, I was shocked!, no really, here's the thing, so it was like two or more months since I last visited this site, I do remember I was just wandering around the "Community Post: Game Threads", loafing around with other OS members, having fun while busily streaming, kyaaa!!, after that, I can't find any time to re-visit again, now, I just opened this site to see what's on the headline's, to see if there are some new upcoming updates, truly, I've missed a lot, tons of them...

Anyway, I also appreciate other OS members that they are saying "thank you", posting admirable resignations likely posting more of the feeling "cheer up, you can do it, their is still hope...".

As a member of the OS Community, I also would like to thank every member of the OS Staff, for their undying hard work and determination towards keeping up this site to its peaceful state and having a great atmosphere where each and every member of the OS Community to feel at ease and very secured about this site. And also, as a member of the OS Community, I will promise to my self and also to everyone that I will no longer meddle around this site ever again, cause I've also greatly disobeyed the certain rules and guidelines to maintain the coordination within this community, the nickname "RAKION911" may also now be assumed to be permanently "BANNED" by others, well maybe according to the OS Staff.

~~Hopes up!! and always remember, KEEP ON STREAMING!!^^

I appreciate what you've done for OS, since I started my otaku journey, I have always sought only one website OS. So I give you my heartfelt thanks for creating and maintaining this site on pure passion. ^_^

hmmm for me.../hmm
Honestly, ever since I joined OS, it was really fun and interesting. Even though I don't bring up discussions/topics, anyone served as an entertainer and brought up all the funny/hilarious discussions. /heh
Though, not all of them are good ones like the previous issue like that. But, the fights are ALWAYS resolved and improved the atmosphere of the group, so I'm certain that one will let the Mods reflect for themselves and correct their mistakes(though, I'm not one to talk about it,since I'm just a member /sry), since they were appointed as Mods and should set as an example to us regular members. /gg

much respect for keep this site up and running for such a long time and running it well. Where other sites have crashed and burned, you chug along, always around, always reliable. The updates may not be as fast, the selection may not be as diverse, but whatever's on the site stays on the site and doesn't go offline. That's a true mark of quality and dedication. And this is only possible because the community here is awesome as hell. This, I think is OS's success formula. All past negativity aside, I sincerely hope we all forgive and forget, move on, and keep this gem of a site alive and running for years to come. This is an institution in the making :)

I didn't knew there were issues behind OS since I'm not really active. It really is a very sad thing. I hope OS and its staff will recover from this and continue to bring happiness to people like me who loves watching them. Ever since a friend of mine told me about this site and joined. I've EXPERIENCED JOY, HAPPINESS, every feeling you can get from watching anime. Plus I had made some new friends in here. OS IS THE BEST EVAH!!! :4:
I wouldn't be having the luxury of being able to enjoy anime without the HARD work of you guys! and that really means a lot to me.
That's why I THANK YOU jbluey and all of the staff of OS for making this possible.
MORE POWER TO YOU GUYS!
ALL HAIL OS!

I love what you do for this site and I couldn't live without it. I will be gone for awhile starting the 18th of feburary but when I get back I plan to make a nice donation to this site that has provided me countless hours...days of fun and relaxation. I hope what I contribute will be enough to say how much I am thankful and I will probably after my first donation make a steady donation from month to month dependig on my cash flow. Again thanks for everything you do and have done for us.

I'm not sure what the situation is, but I do know this is my most favorite anime site for five years now. I appreciate all your hardwork and dedication and I truly admire your vision of creating a free-streaming anime site. :) Thank You!
Dear everyone,

i'm sorry for my english but i just want to say few things.

i am saddened by whats happening in the site right now. Me, Bindu and avich created this site to gather people who enjoy watching anime and make friends. we hired moderators to help us out because we cant do this ourselves. i trusted people even tho i dont trust people so easily.

we made OS for everyone to have fun. we worked hard to provide everyone free anime videos. K and chiva became inactive after few yrs because of their work and outside life. i am the only one left. i cant make decisions bymyself so evryone in the staff started to help me in making improvements and new ideas. maybe it was a mistake because everyone started to fight because of diferences in ideas and opinions. back then only me, chiva and K makes decisions and it was easy for everyone.

i trusted all the mods. I believe they all did good job. yes, there were arguments happening in within the staff but we like to keep it to ourself, only within the staff. i dont want anyone outside the staff to be bothered by it because you came here in OS to have fun streaming and make friends. youre not here to listen to dramas and witness fights. so i am very disappointed that some people took it very seriously and left the staff and insulting the rest of the staff. you had the choice to leave properly, but instead you stained our reputation that K, me and chiva worked hard to build. when you did that you also insulted me. if you left us because of the tension between the PH mods and some mods from the west, well, look what you did now. you caused the whole community to be divided. you dragged everyone to this issue that is suppose to be only within inside the staff. thats not what i wanted to happend when i made OS. our members are not suppose to be bothering this things not because its embarrasing but because i want them only to have fun in staying here. i trusted all of you.

we all make mistakes, we all have different opinions. the Staff may have arguments but we are doing this because we want to improve things in OS. we may have different ideas but its all because for the betterment of your stay and experience here.

i want mods to have fun too. they are doing all of this for free. nothing from your donations go to the pocket of anyone in the staff. i want them to not to take everything seriously. i did not want them to have any frustrations in being a moderator. K advised all the mods to just resign if they feel like moderating is causing them to have frustrations and not have fun in doing it.

with all this mismanagement issues happening, we are bringing it back to like what it was before. only me, Kobo, Cloverleaf and pikel will be the one making major decisions for tge site but will also ask opinions from the other staff. we are all doing this improvements and changes to make OS more fun to everyone.

to those who resigned and cause a great damage in the community that youre saying that you love, thank you for helping us out and your contributions to OS when youre still a staff member. i hope youre happy now. i am also sorry if you have issues with me.

to the current staff members, i advise you to pls resign now if you dont want to cooperate. if you have frustrations in doing your job, pls resign now cause i dont want that to happen to you. i want you to enjoy doing this. lets prove to them that we are better of without them.

to members, what you read in threads or PMs is not the whole story so pls dont judge them. i dont want you to be involved in this. i just want you to have fun, i am really really sorry for all of this trouble.


to everyone, lets all move on. i dont want to see any more discussion or fights about this matter. if needed, i would gladly ban ANYONE who will try to worsen the situation, staff member or not.

Thats all. Sorry for my bad english.

First, I appreciate the site. It is a place I know that I can go to find whatever anime I want. It's not currently up ? No problem, there is a place where I can request it (or even upload it myself !). I am not too active in the forums, cb, or sb, but I do read frequently. I've come across some great titles this way ! It's unfortunate that everything became public. I honestly don't believe that there was any malicious intent from anybody. I think the terminology could have been better though. However, I also know that English isn't a first language for some people, so I don't think that should be held against them either. Mismanagement is an opinion. Without knowing the details, people shouldn't let their imagination take control and think the worst. If there was something that actually needed to be conveyed to all members, such as donations being pocketed, severe favoritism amongst people in sb, or changing the site from PG-13 to MA. . . those are items that should be flagged for everyone. Petty squabbles amongst people, I just can't care about. There will always be disagreements between people on something or another no matter the amount of love (those of us are married can certainly attest to that).

To comment on something someone else posted though. . . I think that Jim's message was necessary. Once a situation like this becomes public, everyone needs to become a part of all the action regardless if they have NO CLUE what is going on. If Jim didn't respond, people would expect the worst / suspect some sort of cover up / think that the people in the highest position simply did not care.

For what it is worth, I come here to watch anime and read some discussions (the first primarily, the latter is just a consequence of the former). It could simply be a white screen with the titles in a list. I appreciate the forums as they allow me to find some interesting items to read and some recommendations to watch.

I hope the problem just dies, because I don't think that this drama is needed. Everyone is doing what they think is best. If there is a big issue, speak up about it.

Enjoy OS ~

For Ordinary members out there. There are ways that we can help OS.

First and foremost Financial! = Donations. If cannot afford wont be a problem. Its Voluntary not a requirement. Thats why this site is FREE!
Free doesnt mean you dont have to pay for all those expenses, but you have the free will to decide whether to help financially.
Second Help by reporting corrupted videos makes this site more better and attracts more visitors that would lead to membership and donations (possibly)
Third dont be hard headed, if you've been warned once dont do it again. Cause the mods are only doing their jobs and making decisions accordingly and with basis.
Lastly GIVE LOVE!. If we love one another we would not think bad of that person and would not cause trouble and misunderstanding against each other.

Thank you for hearing my thoughts out.

I will always consider this site the best no matter what happens... or maybe until the time where I can't watch anime for free here (okay lol) but nevertheless I know that whatever the problems are you could still find a way to resolve this issue. Thank you for doing your best for this site and thank you for still not giving up on it ^_^

This will be my first forum post ever. You guys do an excellent job streaming anime and dramas. I am always surprised that Otaku Streamers has never taken out ad space and it's commendable. Keep doing what you do and try as hard as you can to keep management disputes internal, since as you can see, it becomes a massive PR nightmare to clean up. Anyways, as far as I see it this dispute is over. Keep doing what you do!

Might sound dumb, but I love this community and site. I think there is a lot to be said for looking past the differences we all have and see what we all share. This is not some kookie utopian carp, just the fact we all love anime.....period. Hopefully, focus on the passion will let the personal drama fall to the side. Heaven knows we all have tons of drama irl, dont need it in this little slice of anime paradise. :)

02-09-2014, 08:12 PM
Don't worry, your English was very easy to understand. I don't know of the issues that happened because I am just a viewer who does his own thing in peace. I don't often voice my opinion on things, but I must say that this was very heart felt. I think you should, without question, be as strict as you need to be. Like I said, I haven't really posted or read the subject, but you should do what you think is right. Don't let people get to you and if they are imposing themselves onto you, just lay down the ban hammer.

i think you should make the final decision. they can give you the suggestion but you can make the final changes last. Also, i think that telling them that you can do one idea this month, then switch to another in the next month, this way they dont fight.
But i love this site, i also tell my friends and introduce them to it. A no ad, free, hq streaming is like a dream come true. And all my friends loved it too.

I look forward to going on to this site everyday to watch the anime and talk to some pals, It's also helps anime club because they didn't really know any anime sites before (until I recommended this one). It's saddening to see some fights breaking out and some drama, but hopefully everything calms down and the feud turns into a baby roar.
Maybe you should select a couple of people and not have many people. Lot's of people creates arguments. A couple of people creates discussions. and I tend to notice that if it's voted on, the pissed off people who's idea didn't go through tend to quite it down because "Oh well its majority vote" :D I'm grate full you made this site and I enjoy coming on here alot~

From those of us that sit in the background and just enjoy the anime, Thank you for everything you do. I can't imagine the work it took/takes to put this website together and keep it running. I appreciate it all.

Poor English or not, you got a strong message across. OS is a wonderful site, I wish I could do more to contribute to it. Drama comes with every good thing, what makes it a great thing is when you come out better and stronger then you were before. So all and all, I think OS is stronger and better now. Good luck OS you will always have my support.

We are here to have fun, jimmy is a good man that love's Red Ribbon Cake. He build this site from scratch, with dedication and sacrifice he manage to build this community, you should know a little story about how it start, its funny but this should let you inside jimmy's life and how important OS to him.

The first guy ordered 3 Barbecue and Etc... then the second guy ordered 3 Barbeque and Etc... then the third guy ordered "1 ngoyong please".
